Teyana Taylor Becomes The First Black Woman To Be Named Maxim’s Sexist Woman Alive

Published: Monday 7th Jun 2021 by Sam

Cop a gander of Teyana Taylor, who has been named 2021’s Sexiest Woman Alive by Maxim. 

She is notably the first Black woman to receive the honor.

The publication salutes the multi-hyphenate talent for oozing an effortless sexy aesthetically but also within the potency of her hustle.

Taylor, who is now 30 and married with two children, juggles music with acting and increasingly directing too (under her Spike Tee alias).

Suffice to say, she’s beautiful, booked, and busy.

Head below for pics and words from Taylor about the honor…

Speaking on being Sexist Woman, the star:

😩😩😩😩 Somebody pinch me!!!! Maxim Hot 100 to be named the ‘Sexiest Woman alive’ by literally living in the skin I’m in. WOW….Stepping back in front of the lens has been a journey of self-reflection and self-confidence. Living up to name and title of this shoot wholeheartedly made me nervous.

As a entrepreneur, wife, a busy mother of two & working behind the lens in my director bag I tend to hide behind my sweats & vintage tees, My “Spike Tey” glasses, and whatever hairstyle I’ve mustarded up that day under my @theauntiesinc snap back! So I as you can see I don’t have much time to be and feel sexy.

This particular day was dope because it made me see another side of myself. I had just dropped JUNIE off at school before heading straight to the shoot; sweatpants a beanie and an army jacket. My hair wasn’t done for a “shoot” because I planned on throwing on a wig & I didn’t have on any make up. But when I got there the legendary @Gilles_bensimon said and I quote…. “Let’s shoot! I want you to stay in this…” I said “HUH?! Well let me at least start my make up.. ” as y’all can see I barely had any lashes left 😩 He says no “my dear this is pure.” And in regular Teyana Taylor fashion I said “okay but look Ah b*tch doing her baby hairs” LOL I was like SO LET ME UNDERSTAND THIS…I WILL BE THE SEXIEST Woman Alive IN SWEATS AND A SKULLY? 🥴 Um I guess….” as confused as I was my heart also melted…

I say all of this to say in the true words of Audrey Hepburn… “The beauty of a woman is not in facial mode but the true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives the passion that she shows. The beauty of a woman grows with the passing years.” Embrace and love yourselves for who & what you are because only the purest heart shines through.

Thank you @maximmag I am truly honored to have graced the cover. Thank you @gilles_bensimon for being so much fun 💕
Thankful for everyone involved!

    Great!🙄 just what she needed… she is already arrogant… and til this day I have no idea what she was known for all this time…

  2. Clarks0o00ñ June 7, 2021

    She definitely paid for this title

    She tries too hard.
    Everything is so forced.

    Remember when Rihanna ended her on Twitter.
    Those good old days of Twitter. Lol

    This fugly A** B*tch named sexiest woman alive?

    In a world where we have Rihanna, Beyoncé, Janet Jackson, Ciara, Leona or even Monica.

    She is u g l y and as s*** as fat Joe 🤮🤮

    • Sade stan June 7, 2021

      Monica is ugly af wilted but eyes
      Ppl think she’s pretty cud she’s lightish

    • Sade stan June 7, 2021

      Ugly bug eyed Flopica has that basic ghetto chick look

      • True Tea June 8, 2021

        Monica is not ugly. So you’re saying Monica was ugly in the Angel Of Mine video & looked ghetto?

        I hope you look better & wear conservative attire, have no tattoos since you’re claiming someone look ghetto.

  4. Keyword June 7, 2021

    No shade cuz these pics are an absolute slay but why is she the first ?? Like Rihanna Beyoncé and Aaliyah nicki didn’t exist.

    Cuz tbh teyanna wasn’t Beautiful before the nose job cute but not all that tbh

    • Chance June 7, 2021

      Nicki? Her whole body is fake. She doesn’t qualify 😂😂😂

      • Keyword June 7, 2021

        You’re delusional. Facewise nicki is flawless

    • VLuk June 7, 2021

      Aaliyah been dead 20 years sis……

      • Keyword June 7, 2021

        True but What’s your point ? She’s still known to this day as a icon/legend in music
        She’s influenced some of the biggest act out now.

        she’s achieved more than most of the girls today. And looked and sung better then most girls out now tbh

        Also had better music

      • Keyword June 8, 2021

        Good point

      • Keyword June 8, 2021

        @true tea

      • VLuk June 8, 2021

        My point is Aaliyah can’t be the sexiest woman alive when she’s been dead 20 years. You are stupid as f*** is my second point.

    • True Tea June 8, 2021

      We shouldn’t complain since people expect those women to grace the cover of magazines. The change up here is refreshing & Teyana is being praised strictly for her looks, which are considered unconventional by social standards.

      Grace Jones was also considered ‘ugly’ despite being revered for her looks by modeling agencies.

  5. Dc June 7, 2021

    Sucks being hot and having perfect body didn’t help her music career i thought s** sells 😂

  6. June 7, 2021

    cant you hateful things stop hating on people for at least a day.

  7. D.C June 7, 2021

    Ummm Both Ashanti and Beyonce covered this magazine I’m surprised neither was given the title

  8. 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(💫Perfectly Splendid✨) June 7, 2021

    Why does she looks Brenda from scary movie??? 😂🤣😂 “Heyyyyyyyy, that’s my song…. You know they gave me a shout out on the album, Everywhere I go, I see the same h o e” 💅🏿💅🏿

  9. Fancy BISH (FCK Maristench, Danzou The Fool & Clarksdump 🤣) 👊🏽💎💋 June 7, 2021
